What is known as natural cosmetics, is one which the formulation of its products uses natural ingredients and avoids using synthetic or chemically processed ingredients such as silicones, perfumes and artificial colours, preservatives or petroleum based products, in most cases harmful to our health and environemental pollutans. If on top of these when the products used come from organic farming, then we can talk about biological or organic cosmetics.
The term cosmetics was created in the 16th. century from the greek word ¨cosmêticos¨, which means related to ornamentation. It comes from the root ¨kôsmos¨ which in greek indicates order. The oldest civilizations already used vegetable and essential oils as beauty treatments. Civilizations as Egypt,the Roman Empire, Greece or Mesopotamia gave vegetable oils a very important role and considered them noble products and symbols of power.
